Lexapro and Effexor XR take together?

Does anyone know if you can take Lexapro and Effexor XR together at the same time??

I have been on 10mg of Lexapro for 3 years, it gave me that sense of well being...but then the dr gave me Effexor XR, and now i dont feel that sense of well energy level is better, but i really feel like i need the Lexapro back in too...can i take them together?

I hope somoene can help me....

It's not a good idea to take to serotonergic drugs at the same time. Effexor does affect serotonin as does Lexapro. You have to wean off Effexor slowly, before switching.
